Philippians 4:10-20 (NIV)

In our world of instant gratification, endless desires, and craving for “More” we are often led to believe that the secret to our happiness comes in acquiring more money, the more the better.  Paul says we find the secret to happiness in giving because it blesses others, but then God meets our needs as well and that blesses us.  There is a quote of an unknown author that states, “Freely we have received.  Freely we give.” Tithing is the Biblical concept of giving our first fruits to God by offering our first tenth of our income to God.  Giving is a discipleship and obedience issue of the heart. It is not a matter of how much income; it is a matter of how much obedience. We do not give because we are filled, we give to be filled. God Loves Ya 😉
